Kristian Stanfill [Attention]| Posted April 15, 2009 [MAIN REVIEW]
With sales exceeding five million, worship label sixstepsrecords, home to Chris Tomlin, David Crowder* Band, Charlie Hall, Matt Redman, and Passion, announces its first new artist signing since the label’s inception in 2000. Worship leader Kristian Stanfill will join the sixstepsrecords family, releasing his label debut, Attention, April 21, 2009. After graduating college in 2002, Kristian started leading worship at North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA, also the church home of Dove Award nominated new artist Fee. In 2005, Kristian became actively involved with the Passion movement, first leading a community group at Passion ‘05, a conference for university students, then as a lead worshipper at Passion ‘06. He has also been featured on multiple Passion recorded projects including Passion: Everything Glorious (2006), with his song “Jesus Paid It All” and Passion: God of This City (2008), with his song “Beautiful Jesus”.
“I’ve had the opportunity to lead worship at North Point for more than seven years,” Kristian says. “There are some amazing worship leaders there, and just to have the opportunity to observe the way they lead people into the presence of God has been like attending seminary.
Kristian Stanfill’s album “ATTENTION” is an eleven-song collection of rock worship anthems, ballads and reverential hymns. The album starts off with two songs that are both calls to worship, “Alive And Running” and “Kingdom”, which reminded me of Fee’s “We Shine” and “All Because Of Jesus”. My favorite section of the album comes next with “Lord Of All”, “Go” and hymn-like song “Beautiful Jesus”, originally on Passion: God of This City. “Go” and “Beautiful Jesus” are both great corporate worship songs that I can imagine singing with fellow believers. Actually, we sang Kristian’s “Jesus Paid It All” at my church on Good Friday and many of these songs have that same sincere worship style.
“Faithful”, “Glowing” and “Lead Us On” are joyful, encouraging corporate worship songs. This is a very biblical worship album. Every song has bible verses listed and the messages are reflective and uplifting. Similar to Fee’s album “We Shine”, I found myself relating to the songs right away and enjoyed singing along in worship.
The top songs for me are “Kingdom”, “Go”, “Beautiful Jesus”, “Faithful”, “Glowing” and “Lead Us On”. If you like worship artists Fee, Charlie Hall, Chris Tomlin and Tim Hughes, you’ll enjoy Kristian Stanfill.
Awesome!| Posted June 23, 2010
I just got back from chaperoning a youth trip to Student Life, where Kristian Stanfill was the worship leader. I had only heard one song by him prior to this trip ("Beautiful Jesus"), but he just blew us away! He has an amazing voice and such a heart for God. Not to mention, he's down to earth and hilarious! I bought his CD after this, and every song is straight forward and such pure worship. I definitely suggest buying this CD!
Great New Praise and Worship Artist| Posted June 10, 2009
I First remember hearing Kristian Stanfill on the passion release Everything Glorious singing "Jesus paid it all" and was really impressed with the song. Stanfill really has a heart for God and it comes through in his lyrics. A very contemporary Praise and Worship album that really got me into worship. Stanfill was signed to sixstep records which is the home of the PAssion CD's, David Crowder band, and Chris Tomlin. So he moves in with some great company and does really well holding his own. I really liked a lot of the songs on this album and would highly recommend to fans of Great Praise music and especially fans of other albums put out by sixstep records.
